americans. for decades, a financial embargo by the united states has spared many turtle nesting beaches from a full-scale tourist onslaught. but it's just a matter of time before the embargo is lifted... and then how will cuba's sea turtles fare? bretos: sea turtles are very very susceptible to development. it's probably the number one threat. they're so dependent on beaches, clean beaches, beaches free of pollution, free of lighting... and once the pressure to develop these very pristine beaches picks up, that's going to come at the expense of some very, very healthy sea turtle nesting habitat. narrator: even on cayo largo the beaches are beginning to show the effects of tourism, and pollution is just one of the dangers the turtles face. in cuba, sea turtle eggs are a delicacy. enterprising cubans hunt for nests and dig up the eggs to sell on the black market. fortunately for the turtles of cayo largo, gonzalo nodarse and felix moncada have something else in mind. [ man speaking spanish ] interpreter: sea turtles are a charismatic species. you get the feeling that the
: the united states air force uses the term "remotely piloted aircraft." they are also known as unmanned aerial vehicles or, as the media likes to call them, drones. narrator: already the pentagon relies on a family of more than 10,000 drones, usually to spy but sometimes to kill. small enough to fit in a soldier's backpack, the three-foot-long raven is the most widely used spy drone in the world. the stealthy sentinel provided crucial intelligence in the raid to kill bin laden. the killer predator has flown thousands of missions since 2001 and the giant global hawk can stay aloft and spy for up to 35 hours. the military uses drones to support troops on the ground. the cia maintains a covert drone program to find and target individuals. the government claims drones have helped to eliminate up to 70% of al qaeda's top leadership. they have been so effective, the air force predicts nearly a third of its attack and fighter planes will be drones within a decade. planes can fly longer, they can pull more gs, they can be more precise when they bomb if a human is not in the co
out to identify all the 3,000 million separate chemical units that make up the human genetic code. it took nearly 13 years, and then, exactly 50 years after crick and watson had worked out the structure of dna the human genome was cracked. and this is it. in these volumes is all the information needed to define the genetic structure of the human species. each number refers to one of our 23 chromosomes. if i open it up, you can see that the text consists of just one very, very, very long list of just four letters -- a, c, t, g. each combination represents instructions for one element in the human design. this is the secret language of dna -- this is the book of life. and each one of us has our own edition. when i first heard back in 1953 that the structure of dna had been worked out, i could scarcely have imagined that it would ever be possible to print out the whole of one genome in a book. but today the process has been so speeded up that it's possible for anyone to have it done in half a day. and the comparison between the genome of one species an

as though the united states was in some ways losing its domination. narrator: to investigate the perceived threat to american democracy through communist infiltration the house of representatives established the committee on un-american activities. whitfield: huac, as it was popularly known, was investigating communist activities after the second world war primarily in the arts, beginning with hollywood largely, it's fair to say, for purposes of publicity. narrator: robbins' troubles had begun in 1950, when the columnist and television host, ed sullivan, learned of his prior communist associations and cancelled robbins' appearance from his popular variety show. for three years, sullivan and his friends at the fbi pressured robbins to name his associates in the party, and for three years, robbins resisted. finally huac subpoenaed him. if you're subpoenaed you testify. you believe in the law you testify. he was not a particularly political person. what ensnared him was basically that he, by 1953, was famous. ed sullivan said to him, "if you don't name names i
